I hope to continue posting clips of this nature on a regular basis. Some of the shots in this piece had been sitting around on a hard drive stashed away in a desk for almost 3 years.

creepy and organic
That not crazy, that's brilliant! Surely you have a youtube channel. how come so few people post their youtube channel addresses? Not too sure what to tell you as far as encoding - clearly the archive doesn't allow for 1028 mp4s. bummer. I know that digitaleyes has an awesome encoding configuration. check his stuff out. I've downloaded now hundreds of vj clips and you two are my top picks. Oh and I can't remember how I stumbled on these clips. Trolling, always trolling...

Glad you could put the clips to some use
I meant to reply sooner and ask if had any recommendations for a middle ground between the huge 'animation' compressed quicktimes and the mp4's.
You pretty much have the technique figured out. I've been spending most of my days for some time now using a flatbed scanner as my primary tool for animation (I've been called crazy more than once). The cross section of the flower base was left on the scanner glass for about a week and scanned several times a day. I used after effects to loop it back and forth.
If you get a chance let me know how you found the footage (search terms or link) and thanks for the compliments. I've had a lot of fun screening my work at family events and talking to kids about it.
